Yes I realize Iʻm helplessly behind the curve, but this is the first year of my life Iʻve lived with an Xbox near by and had the time to spend some quality days with it. I realize why none of my friends mentioned this game to me, I canʻt seem to stop playing it.
Iʻm just gonna lay this down. Fable II is the best RPG ever. Yeah, ever. And Iʻm someone who only bought the Playstation evolutions because I always felt they had the better RPGs going on; I feel like Iʻve wasted years of Fable II playing time due to a silly console allegiance!
So what makes this game so awesome. Well, the minigames are epic. I have poured beer, forged swords, and chopped wood for HOURS at a time (sorry Legend of Legaiaʻs Baku Fighters). The economy dynamics are incredibly intricate and have me making spreadsheets to track and take advantage of them. But most important of all can be summed up in a 140character tweet I made last night:
tehnakki: "heehee, made a guy travel 105miles to have sex with my character. I love Fable II"
Yes. I gets to have sex with people*, marry them, cheat on them, and do it over the span of the whole world!! My favorite thing to do is relocate NPCs to new cities by marriage. I am hoping to change the ENTIRE population of atleast one city by doing this. Itʻs gonna be epic.
I just hope I manage to finish this game before Fall term starts, or I may have to ask the roommates to hide the Xbox from me.
*My female PC has 7 wives and 2 husbands right now. I LOVE that!
